    I will however delete any posts that aren't somewhat ANU-related.

    Moving in in a few hours. Currently posting from the lounge area opposite Gate 15, Terminal 3, Sydney Airport. So far has been good, my flights have been ahead of schedule and I have survived two checkpoints without being picked for a random explosives test (new personal record).

    (if anyone doesnt know hes the ViceChancellor of anu, but he posts a bit on bos)
    Yep, hence why I'm the mod. :P

    I've been looking for about 3 weeks now for a room - this is so ridiculous compared to every other city in Australia.

    Go walk around Civic, you'll need to know it! It's not far to the Civic Library Driver Licence Service to pick up a proof of age, and IIRC they're only $5. NSW ID is of course valid.

    I'm still unpacking my stuff tonight - 26kg taken with me on the plane, 28kg posted to me (which I had to walk to the post office to get), and a carload of stuff underneath a friend's house. I don't know how I can have so much stuff...

    Re: ANU 2011 Semester 1 Chatter Thread

    So, since this thread is rather morbid, and lethargic I'll ask: Why did you guys choose to go to ANU? The prestige of the university, convenience of being close to your home, scholarship(s), or simply because they offered the course you wanted?

    Well it was ANU, UMelb ,UNSW or USyd.

    Melb's enter was too high.
    Don't want to live in Sydney.
    ANU is the best for maths (imho) and Canberra looked okay for students to live in.

    OH dont worry. I literally brought my home with me. Asian parents, you know, oh bring this (salt) you'll need it, Oh bring this (Soy source), you'll need it. So loving but so heavy..

    @Aquawhite:
    I live in Sydney so it's nowhere close, and ANU was actually my second preference, the first one being USYD's Psychology. I didn't get it so i got into ANU, and i didn't want to wait for February round because i doubt i can get into anything else that i wanted. Also, sometime you just want to live away from family, and live by yourselves... Also Canberra is really quiet, and i don't really have a life so..., great study environment i guess. ALSO, ANU's a pretty good university(I've heard).

    =D

    Some guy told me to go to uni, might be useful. I did a price/distance from home/ranking vector calculation for all english language universities and ANU came out no.1 the next day I bought a plane ticket.

    Re: ANU 2011 Semester 1 Chatter Thread

    I wanted to go to ANU 'cause of a variety of reasons that include moving away from home, wanting to leave Sydney, wanting to be more independent, wanting the campus experience etcetcetc. But mostly because ANU is Australia's best university and I reckon' that if I can, then the best is where I'd want to be c:

    That and ANU is supposedly great if you want to get into the field of politics, so that's why I'm here.

    @azsakura, warrumbul is great. Though. It really is like living in a hotel :| It's hard to make friends :c But it's still lovely anyway.

    @ajdlinux, ahahaha, I walked from UniLodge to the Civic Area and back again probably four times today just shopping and trying to get myself a new phone-plan with Vodafone.

    And I can get the card in Civic? I asked reception and they said I had to go to the RTA in Dickson or wherever :s

    How do you guys have so many things to carry? D: Or rather, how can you carry all of it?! My room seems ridiculously empty right now.

    Thank you for livening up this thread!

    Reasons for me were a mix of: reasonable distance (I'd have to go at least to Sydney anyway), good environment (it's not Sydney), prestige and academic excellence (particularly in politics).

    'Looked' being past tense. :P It's great once you find a place to live...

    Civic Driver Licence Service at the Civic Library issues them. From UniLodge, walk along Childers St towards the School of Music, get to University Avenue, walk all the way down to London Crt (the Supreme Court), turn left and follow the road, eventually you'll find the library (near the Legislative Assembly). Inside, downstairs, take a ticket...

    Signal for bus, get on, pay at door, show concession card, he will give you a reciept, sit down on seat
    Go to newsagent or similar shop. Buy ACTION Concession Faresaver 10, $12.60. Enjoy $1.26 bus rides and free transfers within 90 minutes.

    Or eventually (hopefully this month or next), buy a MyWay card for $20, set up autoloading, and enjoy very cheap fares which automatically top up from your bank account.
